Like any monumentally important milestone, it got me thinking about who I am and what I know, who I thought I’d be by now and who I actually am. What, I wonder, do I have to show for 40 years on this green earth?But here’s the thing. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the older I got, the less I knew. I’m less sure about things I knew for certain when I was 30. At 20, life was a no-brainer: get a degree, marry the guy, get the job, have the kids. By 30, I had the kids and had no time to think about anything – but I could still tell you that breast beat bottle, that children shouldn’t watch too much television and that being a mom is the be-all and end-all of my life’s purpose.And now, on the big day?I’m glad that I breastfed my kids, but no longer have a strong opinion about what others do. My children have probably watched more TV than is acceptable by my compatriots in the mommy mafia.And is being a mom fulfilling? Absolutely. But is it everything? Where do my kids end and I begin?The answer is I don’t know. And the truth is that there are a lot of things I still don’t know. I have learned a thing or two here and there. I’ve learned not to have any heroes. Heroes often let you down. But that it’s okay because I’ve disappointed myself and I’m learning to forgive all of us.I’ve learned that I don’t want to be a brand. I don’t want to be defined by the things I buy or the candidates I vote for. I don’t want to be locked into a belief system that is so rigid I can’t be open to learning new things.Now the things I don’t know far outweigh what I’m sure of. Here are 39 of them. Maybe I’ll find the answers by my 50th.What I Don’t Know by Age 40:What I want to be when I grow upHow to keep it that way after I clean the houseHow to meditateHow to save moneyHow to make meatloafThe lyrics to “Yellow Ledbetter”How not to cry when I’m angryHow to thicken my skinHow to achieve great eyebrowsHow to be a wife, mother, employee and human being simultaneouslyHow to not order a second (or third) glass of wineThe difference between an alligator and a crocodileWhether Pluto is considered a planet or notHow to do a cartwheelHow to not care what others think of meWhy women vote RepublicanWhat happens when you dieHow to fold a fitted sheetHow to wear a scarfHow to organize anythingHow to achieve balanceWhy I can’t just use the fancy towelsWhy I need a pocketbook when I have pocketsThe difference between foundation and concealer, and how to apply eitherHow to be in the momentIf ghosts are realHow to disagree amicablyHow to be satisfied with what I haveHow some people don’t drink coffeeOr don’t like chocolateHow to code (or what that really means)How to do a headstandIf God is realHow Trump got this farWhat happened at the end of the SopranosHow to get through Joyce’s UlyssesHow to pronounce “quinoa,” “acai” and “manicotti.” I only want to eat the last one.Why pot isn’t legalMy place
Right from the outset, the Section III Class A baseball playoffs featured excitement and plot twists, with three local sides as central figures.Jamesville-DeWitt and East Syracuse Minoa met up in last Tuesday’s quarterfinals, moved to Onondaga Community College, and the Spartans staged a miraculous seventh-inning comeback, yet still lost as the Red Rams pulled it out, 8-7.A pair of first-inning runs put J-D in front, and for 5 2/3 innings A.J. Ortega protected that lead. The Rams added a run in the fourth and appeared to put the game away with three runs in the bottom of the sixth, Matt Alexander working his way to four RBIs and Nick Brotzki adding two RBIs. It was the Comets seizing a 2-0 lead with single runs off pitcher Derek Jann in the third and fourth innings, but CBA countered, tying it 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth and then thwarting Carthage in the fifth when Joey Marsallo threw out a runner at home to kill a bases-loaded situation.Fired up by that, CBA scored twice more in the bottom of the fifth and Jann blanked the Comets the rest of the way, only allowing three hits and five walks overall. Kodi Dotterer had two hits as he, along with Marsallo and Leo Genecco, had one RBI apiece.And this led to Friday’s semifinals at Falcon Park, pitting J-D against no. 6 seed Auburn and CBA against no. 4 seed Whitesboro. With one big rally and strong pitching from Carter Kowalczyk, the Red Rams took care of its part, defeating the Maroons 6-1.They were 0-0 when, in the bottom of the third, J-D broke through against Auburn pitcher Brendan Williams. Logan Wing singled, Bobby Galusha reached on an error and walks to Alexander and Matt Goodson produced a 1-0 lead.More would follow when Giblin singled up the middle, plating two runs, and right after Foss and Mateo Santos produced run-scoring singles, which knocked Williams out of the game.Staked to that 5-0 lead, Kowalczyk lasted until the sixth, striking out six before Auburn plated a run and put two on base after Santos added an RBI single in the fifth. Foss relieved Kowalczyk, escaped that jam and loaded the bases in the seventh before inducing a game-ending groundout before a quiet seventh inning ended it.Now it was CBA’s turn against Whitesboro, but it could not quite match what J-D accomplished, unable to recover from a rough start in a 7-3 defeat to the Warriors.M.P. Geiss started for the Brothers against Whitesboro’s Noah McAndrew, and it stayed scoreless until the bottom of the third, when the Warriors broke out for four runs to take a lead it would not relinquish.Only in the top of the fourth did CBA get on the board, Boule driving home Genecco, but Whitesboro, helped by Avery Cook’s two-run double, answered with three runs in the bottom of the fourth off Anthony Marsallo and Cade Bacon.Even with a 7-1 deficit, the Brothers nearly made it back. In the bottom of the sixth, it chased McAndrew and got two runs thanks to Wilson’s RBI single and, with the bases loaded, Joey Marsallo getting hit by reliever Ryan Cardone.Now Bryce Gnatek replaced Cardone on the mound, facing Genecco, who with one out represented the tying run. Genecco lined one – right to second base, where Ryan Cook grabbed it and forced the runner for an inning-ending double play.Gnatek got the final three outs from there, and CBA’s season concluded with a 16-3 record, Whitesboro advancing to its third consecutive sectional final, where J-D awaits them Sunday at 3 p..m. at OCC.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Three outs from seeing its reign as sectional champions, ESM rose up in the top of the seventh and battered three J-D pitchers – Nolan Giblin, Carter Kowalcyzk and Murphy Foss – for six runs to take a 7-6 lead. Hunter Borkowski drove in two of those runs, with RBIs also going to Brendan Seburn and Nolan Penoyer.Now it was up to Sean Welch to close it out for the Spartans, but J-D recovered from blowing a five-run lead, tying it at 7-7 and winning it when Giblin, atoning for his mound struggles, drove home Bobby Galusha with the decisive run.Meanwhile, top seed Christian Brothers Academy saw its sectional quarterfinal against no. 8 seed Carthage pushed back 24 hours by rain, but when they did play last Wednesday, it proved tense before the Brothers pulled out a 4-2 decision over the Comets.
